I’m in the middle of his Resurrection and the Moral Order and it is wonderful. This is not to say that I completely agree with every point he makes, but he is undoubtedly brilliant. Hopefully (by the time I’m 250 years old thanks to modern technology) I’ll be able to write like this someday. However, it’s time for a story challenge. We have a challenge this week that is not knew, but that I haven’t given you in a very long time. I am going to give you a theme and you have to write your story on that theme. However, I am also going to give you four words (a verb, a noun, an adjective, and an adverb) and you will have to use each of those words in your story. The goal in this exercise is to write a story that includes these words in a natural and meaningful way.

Your theme: order

Verb: create

Noun: hope

Adjective: plausible

Adverb: effectively
